DW launches Performance Series

Drum Workshop just launched their latest line of drum sets, the Performance Series. While offering the matchless sound of DW drums, this new series comes with features that can only be found in this particular kit. The Performance Series offers a brand new shell technology devised by John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California. Combining the latest grain orientation technology and hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple, Performance Series' proprietary HVX shells deliver a low, punchy fundamental, with ample resonance and projection that's perfectly suited for live applications. 

Performance Series 8" Toms feature a 7-ply HVX construction, while the Snares feature 10-ply HVX, and the 10"-16", along with all Bass Drums, feature 8-ply HVX construction. The Performance Series is available in 5 beautiful hand-sprayed lacquer finishes: White Ice, Sapphire Blue, Black Mirra, Cherry Stain and Ebony Stain.

To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch® rod system. The rods feature 10/32 threads rather than the 10/24 that’s standard on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process. True-Pitch® rods are only available in chrome and gold. DW's patented STM™ (suspension tom mount) system allows drums to vibrate freely, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever. DW Coated/Clear heads by Remo USA come standard on all DW drums and incorporate a coated tone ring for just the right amount of muffling with plenty of resonance. Crimped flesh hoops provide maximum vibration and durability

DW Performance Series is available in 2 pre-configured tom packs with a snare.
